The dancer and choreographer María Pagés (National Dance Award 2002) and the Belgian-Moroccan choreographer and dancer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (Best Choreographer of the Year 2008) unite flamenco and contemporary dance in a deeply renovating piece born of mutual admiration.
From the delicacy, the respect and the curiosity to explore unknown territories until the moment, both have found the way to fuse their particular choreographic universes.
With Dunas they put up a unique spectacle that with original music of Szymon Brzoska and Rubén Levaniegos -mued with flamenco, classic and arab echoes- evoke their own roots. With a beautiful scenery that transports us to the exotic magic of the desert, Dunes overcomes cultural differences, sketching shared landscapes and building, with the universal language of dance and emotions, rich bridges of dialogue.
The piece premiered at the Danse Festival in Singapore in October 2009. Since then it has been presented in theaters and festivals around the world, rising in 2010 with the Giraldillo Award for Best Show at the XVI Seville Flamenco Biennial.
